What nutrients are needed for proper growth and development
It is necessary that your child receives the essential nutrients especially during the early years for brain development and learning.
The unique blend of nutrients includes Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), polydextrose (PDX), galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), and Yeast Beta-Glucan. Let's find the answer to how these nutrients work together.
DHA: A key to brain growth and development
Did you know that DHA represents 15% of all fatty acids in the frontal cortex? DHA is a vital fatty acid in the brain and it is a primary structural component of brain tissue, which plays a role in effective communication between brain cells. DHA is essential for brain growth and development, as well as brain function1, including key development areas such as intellectual, motor, emotional/social, and communication skills.
Yeast Beta-Glucan: An ingredient to enhance body’s immune system
The unique blend of ingredients (DHA, PDX, GOS, and Yeast Beta-Glucan) is, specially designed to support more well days4, which means more learning opportunities for his well-rounded development.
PDX and GOS: Dietary fiber and Prebiotic to support digestive health
PDX and GOS work in tandem throughout the large intestine to foster the growth of good bacteria and promote digestive health2,3.
